Health and Physical Education

Health Education

We believe the 833 health student should learn to advocate and communicate effectively to promote healthy behaviors, resolve and manage conflict, use refusal skills, and reflect on their goals & choices. They should also be able to use and access resources to make informed decisions that result in safe behaviors and self management throughout their daily and life experiences as they transition to resilient individuals in middle school, high school, and beyond.
